After the second Friday night of the inaugural THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES this summer in Burnsville, it seemed a natural extension to find an opportunity to create this beautiful and completely socially distanced and safe music event and run it for consecutive days one more time during this unprecedented summer we are all living through.

So, we did it!

Starting on Aug. 27th and continuing through Labor Day, Sept. 7th, THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES will present 48 extremely talented musical acts that will encompass multiple genres and appeal to people of all ages. The music will begin at Noon each day and continue through 8:45 p.m., allowing us to present 4-5 different shows each day!

For many of these artists performing, this is the only chance they have had to perform since early March of 2020, as incredible as that sounds. Your purchased ticket may well contribute to the only check this band will receive  from performing in months! This is just one of the many reasons your support is so appreciated.

We need this.

The musicians need it, and the people who have attended the first five weeks of THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES have repeatedly told us how appreciative they are to experience some “relief” from what is going on — by just sitting outside and watching live music again.

My partner in THE RELIEF SESSIONS SUMMER CONCERT SERIES and MICK STERLING PRESENTS, John Scott, has been saying for years: “live music keeps the peace one hour at a time“. He is correct. It does.

And we need peace in so many facets of our lives these days. Music is a healing thing. We hope you want to experience some healing during these 12 days of music. We hope to see you there!
